Our Lady of Mt. Carmel

The Octave Day of the Feast of Our Lady of the Atonement is the day commemorating the appearance of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel to St. Simon Stock in Cambridge, England, 760 years ago today.

O God our Father, who didst adorn the Order of Mount Carmel with the special title of the most blessed Mother of thy Son, the ever-virgin Mary: Mercifully grant that as we remember her in our solemn observance, so by her intercession we may attain to everlasting joy; through the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
